  • Sabre chooses Red Hat OpenShift for cloud-native DevOps platform

    As part of its strategy to re-imagine the business of travel, Sabre Corporation today announced that it will leverage Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform as the foundation for its Next Generation Platform initiative. OpenShift will be the basis of a modern architecture that includes microservices, development and operations (DevOps), and a multi-faceted cloud strategy to lead an industry evolution in the future of retailing, distribution, and fulfillment through innovative technology. OpenShift, built on containers and Kubernetes, is the the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform for running existing and cloud-native applications in any cloud.

  • Automation Broker Versioning

    The Automation Broker is preparing for OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) 3.10. With several releases of the Broker (formerly Ansible Service Broker) we wanted to take a few moments to communicate our release strategy.

  • Security Technologies: ExecShield

    The world of computer security has changed dramatically in the last few years. Keeping your operating system updated with the latest security patches is no longer sufficient. Operating system providers need to be more proactive in combating security problems. A majority of exploitable security flaws are due to memory corruption. ExecShield, a Red Hat-developed technology, included since Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, aims to help protect systems from this type of exploitable security flaws.

  • Red Hat Customer Portal named one of the "Ten Best Support Websites" for eighth consecutive year

    We’re excited to announce that for the eighth consecutive year, the Red Hat Customer Portal has been named one of the “Top Ten Support Websites” by the Association of Support Professionals (ASP).

    The ASP is an international membership organization for customer support managers and professionals. Its prestigious "Ten Best Web Support Sites" competition, now celebrating its 20th year, showcases excellence in online service and support. Selected by a panel of judges with experience in web support design and implementation, winners are evaluated through a scoring system based on 25 separate performance criteria. Key criteria include overall usability, design and navigation; knowledgebase and search implementation; interactive features; community engagement; and site development strategy.

  • The Kubernetes Third-Year Anniversary Is Just the Beginning

    It is hard to believe Kubernetes 1.0 was launched just over three years ago, while its rampant adoption will likely continue to run riot.

    The Kubernetes ecosystem is indeed huge, and many organizations both large (think Bloomberg) and small continue to take advantage of what may become one of the most successful open source platforms in IT history.

    The past year has been especially important for Kubernetes’ maturity as a platform and its wide-scale adoption. We highlight below the most stand-out developments.

    In March 2018, Kubernetes became the first-ever CNCF project to receive the “Graduated” status. And, more recently, Kubernetes has earned the 2018 OSCON Most Impact Award.

  • Happy birthday, Kubernetes: Here’s to three years of collaborative innovation

    Three years ago the community celebrated the first production-ready release of Kubernetes, what is now a de facto standard system for container orchestration, at the 1.0 launch day at OSCON. Today we celebrate Kubernetes to not only acknowledge it on the project’s birthday but to also thank the community for the extensive work and collaboration to drive the project forward.

  • Joe macros FTW

    Fast forward to the beginning of my time editing RPM spec files; first for myself, then for Fedora Extras, then for Fedora at large, EPEL, employers, etc. One of the most common errors I see are bogus dates in changelogs. That, and people who manage to misspell their own names and/or email addresses. I’ve done it. If you’ve made any reasonable number of spec edits, you’ve almost certainly done it. So we’re careful. We check the date, the day of the week, and do our best. We copy/paste/edit when we can.

Fedora 29 Xfce Might Upgrade To 4.13 Desktop Packages

Filed under
Red Hat

Yet another change proposal for Fedora 29 is upgrading its Xfce packages to what is currently in the 4.13 "development" series.

Fedora's Xfce desktop option has largely remained with the stable 4.12 packages, which rely upon GTK2, while the Xfce 4.13 development releases have been out for a while and overall in pretty good shape while transitioning to GTK3. With no Xfce 4.14 stable release on the horizon, Fedora packagers might move to these 4.13 packages anyways since they seem to be in good shape and offer near complete GTK3 tool-kit support.

Fedora: Some Fedora 29 Plans, Report for Fedora App, and Flatpak Outline

Red Hat
  • Fedora 29 Aims To Better Support FPGAs

    A rather late self-contained feature proposal for the in-development Fedora 29 is to better support FPGAs.

    Given the growing number of devices appearing with onboard FPGAs thanks to machine/deep learning, AI, and other workloads that can be accelerated on FPGAs, Fedora 29 is aiming to better support them. The support will be focused on FPGAs with good upstream kernel support and utilizing the FPGA manager framework that is vendor-neutral.

  • [Week 9] GSoC Status Report for Fedora App: Amitosh

    You can now subscribe to a particular calendar from the Fedora app!. No more missed meetings. We also take care of converting the date and time to the local timezone so that you get the reminders at the correct time.

    Subscribing to a calendar automatically syncs all events for a calendar on FedoCal to the device calendar. If the device calendar syncs with a sync provider such as Google calendar, you will get the notification in all synced devices. If a meeting is deleted or removed, the reminder will dismissed as well.

  • Flatpak – a look behind the portal

    There are several principles that have guided the design of the existing portals.

    Keep the user in control

    To achieve this, most portals will show a dialog to let the user accept or deny the applications’ request. This is not a hard rule — in some cases, a dialog is just not practical.

    Avoid yes/no questions

    Direct questions about permissions tend to be dismissed without much thought, since they get in the way of the task at hand. Therefore, portals avoid this kind of question whenever possible and instead just let the user get on with the task.

    For example, when an app is requesting to open a file on the host, we just present the user with a fille chooser. By selecting a file, the user implicitly grants the application access to the file. Or he can cancel the file selection and implicitly deny the applications’ request.

    Don’t be annoying

    Nothing is worse than having to answer the same question over and over. Portals make use of a database to record previous decisions and avoid asking repeatedly for the same thing.

    [...]

    If you want to explore how portals work, or just need to double-check which files an app has access to, flatpak has tools that let you do so conveniently.

The company was founded in 2014 by technologist Brian Mann, after observing that while computing and application development had changed drastically over the past decade, software testing had not. Large companies now release thousands of software updates a year, often on a daily basis across their organization. Technology teams aim to move rapidly, iterating on an agile basis and working in parallel so they can sync their code together even faster. But, as Lanham explains, the testing software out there was far outdated for these agile processes.

Top Linux Distros for Software Developers

A major factor in the choice of Linux distro is your personal preference. You may try one of the most popular Linux distros but find that you prefer one that’s less often used. Your experience with Linux will also factor into which distro is suited to you. With the benefits Linux can offer — including flexibility, stability, and support — it’s worth evaluating your options.
